    Dont think you should spend that much on that! Intel will be bringing out there new Quad Core soon which will be alot better than that!

    Check for better deals. Also, ditch the Athlon and grap an Intel Core2 Duo. If you want to build a less expensive system, remember that all the newest tech will be the most expensive, and only be the newest for less than half a year. Build a computer that is second generation, using parts that are just below the top of the line. There will not be much of a performance drop (just in bragging rights) and you will save a ton of money.
